  • Lady Rockets whip Walton-Verona

    The SCHS softball team moved to 4-0 with very different victories against Walton-Verona and Garrard County this week.

    The girls hammered Walton-Verona, 14-1, in five innings on Wednesday, but on Tuesday they had to work to get by Garrard County, 4-2.

    “We executed well two nights in a row,” SCHS Coach Kelly Cable said. “We had to manufacture runs [Tuesday], and we hit the ball very well [Wednesday].”

    The Lady Rockets pounded out 11 hits, including two triples, in routing Walton-Verona (1-5).

  • Rockets drill Eminence, 20-1

    The SCHS baseball team pounded out 16 hits, including a home run and five more extra-base hits, in a 20-1 five-inning whipping of Eminence on Tuesday.

  • Spring full of optimism on...

    The SCHS football team hit the field Wednesday for its annual spring game.

    And though there were four players involved with baseball and 10 others out for injuries and other reasons, SCHS Coach Todd Shipley said he was “a little shocked” with what he saw.

    “I was very pleased with how the guys came out and played,” he said. “We tried to keep the two teams even, and after I divided them, the A team was very confident, and the B team was a little skeptical. But the B team came out and won, 21-0.”

  • SCHS boys win home meet

    The SCHS track-and-field teams finished up the home portion of their schedule with an all-comers meet Tuesday.

    The boys' squad took first place with 111 points, slipping past Lexington Christian by four points.

    The Lady Rockets finished fifth with 69.5 points. Bardstown took first with 146.5.

  • Rockets grab second in first meet

    SCHS opened its track season Tuesday with a large home all-comers meet.

    The boys posted 16 top-five finishes, good enough to finish second overall in the meet to Trinity.

    The Lady Rockets fielded a small team but still managed to score a strong 49 points, enough for sixth out of 11 teams.

    The Rockets seemed to have enough high finishes to win the meet, but Trinity's larger squad took the honors.

    "Numbers killed us on the boys' side," SCHS Coach George Cottrell said.

  • Lady Rockets move to 3-0

    The SCHS girls' tennis team gave up its first point of the season but still whipped Anderson County, 4-1, Monday.

    Shelby County No. 1 Paula Pilcher coasted in her first set, winning, 6-2, but struggled some in the second set before pulling it out, 7-5.

  • Boys tennis team has tough start

    At 0-2 on the season SCHS's boys tennis team has struggled through the early part of the year, but Coach Gerald Buchert said his team will improve.

    “We’re not off to a good start, but we have our top three players back, and they improved with a lot of work over the summer,” he said. “The weather has affected us, like everybody I’m sure, and we haven’t gotten a lot of practice time in. But I think we can get better with more work as the season goes on.”

  • Sharks have strong 12-and-under...

    The younger Shelby Sharks squad dropped time in more than 70 percent of their swims at the 12-and-under state meet at the Mary T. Meagher Aquatics Center in Louisville over the weekend.

    Sam Ruble stole the show during the meet. Not only did he make the finals in all seven of his events, but also he was less than five hundredths of a second off of the Sharks’ team records in all seven events.

    He placed third in the 50 fly and freestyle, sixth in the 100 back and seventh in the 100 free.

  • Lady Rockets whip Eastern

    A lot of patience at the plate, a couple timely hits and a much-improved defense led the Lady Rockets to an 8-4 victory at Eastern Tuesday.

    They had just five hits but earned an astounding 12 walks against the Eagles.

    “We scored four runs in the first on just one hit, and that wasn’t even an RBI,” SCHS Coach Kelly Cable said.

    The Lady Rockets had just one hit that scored runs, a two-run single from Dee Dee Davis in the fifth, but they were able to force Eastern into giving up runs.
